Amazing to see in the flesh some of the icons of the Cold War. Some of the aircraft are open to tour inside but you have to make sure you get the right tickets at the entrance.

Awesome museum for plane fans. It almost includes all soviet era planes. I am a little surprised that they don' they don't have Su-27(Only one Su-27 is available in Ukraine in Kharkiv ), and An-12(This is quite common). The An 71 madcap is really impressive....More
